Jeopardy's Alex Trebek Reveals His Tumors Have Shrunk By More Than 50 Percent

Back in March, Alex Trebek revealed he was battling stage four pancreatic cancer, and now, he’s revealing some amazing news.

According to doctors, the 78-year-old Jeopardy game show host is in “near remission.”

“It’s kind of mind-boggling,” Alex told People. “The doctors said they hadn’t seen this kind of positive result in their memory…some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent.”

“I’ve got a couple million people out there who have expressed their good thoughts, their positive energy directed towards me and their prayers,” Alex said. “I told the doctors, this has to be more than just the chemo, and they agreed it could very well be an important part of this.”

He added, “I’ve got a lot of love out there headed in my direction and a lot of prayer, and I will never ever minimize the value of that.”

    Nothing miraculous about it. The wealthy can survive terminal cancer due to their money. Wasn’t surprised to hear that he is close to going into remission.

    Miracles happen, and I hope and pray he has a miracle. My dear friend had no money or any good healthcare, but she went to a man who helped her the natural way with nutrition and herbs, etc and her advanced cancer is gone. That was over 20 years ago. She now has some dementia, but she’s in her mid 80s.
